Quinoa and spiralizers? Survey reveals Brits still have soft spot for retro dining

Quinoa and spiralizers? Survey reveals Brits still have soft spot for retro dining

Despite the rise in popularity of superfoods such as quinoa, kale and avocado – and gadgets like spiralizers and juicers – Brits still place cottage pie and toastie makers as firm favourites when it comes to dining.

This is according to our most recent survey of more than 1,000 consumers. We looked at which retro kitchen items the UK public favour and revealed some interesting findings:

  • More than one-third (34.06%) of Brits name cottage pie as their favourite retro dish, while toad in the hole and prawn cocktail came second and third respectively
  • One-quarter (24.5%) of Brits name the toastie maker as the retro kitchen gadget they can’t live without
  • Half of Brits (50%) said three or more recipes have been handed down from an older generation
  • The UK’s top three retro sweets are; Bonbons, Refreshers and Love Hearts, with 1 in 5 Brits selecting Bonbons as their outright favourite

The nation also voted the 60s as the best design area, which isn’t surprising as our Retro fridge freezer collection is one of our best-selling lines!
